Governing principles

Five guiding principles - relevancy, inclusivity, credibility, practicality and transparency - underpin the decisions made about the implementation, engagement and reporting of the Australian Beef Sustainability Framework by the Sustainability Steering Group (SSG).

Governance

The Framework is an initiative of the Red Meat Advisory Council (RMAC). RMAC appointed a grassroots Sustainability Steering Group (SSG) to lead the implementation of the framework. The SSG continues the process from the inaugural Sustainability Steering Group, that developed the Australian Beef Sustainability Framework through extensive consultation with stakeholders.


Funding and resourcing

The Australian Beef Sustainability Framework is an industry-led project managed by an RMAC-delegated SSG. Day-to-day management and funding are provided through industry service company MLA and funded through levy funds from the grass-fed, feedlot and processor levies. AMPC and LiveCorp as the industry service companies for processing and live export, retrospectively manage related projects and activities that are captured in the Framework.



RMAC & The Australian Beef Sustainability Framework

The Red Meat Advisory Council (RMAC) is an industry advocacy and advisory group for the Australian red meat and livestock supply chain from ‘paddock to plate.’ This means RMAC represents beef, sheepmeat and goat meat production, feedlotting, retailing, wholesaling and livestock and boxed product exporting.

RMAC is a leadership group that believes that it is better to work together with customers, the community and government for a prosperous industry. They drive the Meat Industry Strategic Plan 2020 which identifies Consumer and Community support, and continuous improvement in livestock wellbeing, environmental management and safe and nutritious red meat.

Positioning the Australian red meat and livestock industry for longevity and prosperity is vital and that is why RMAC is the project lead for the Australian Beef Sustainability Framework in collaboration with the Sustainability Steering Group.
